Well anyolehow, we did go for a stroll on Saturday evening, after a rainless day, and it was lovely. We're there so often that I don't always take photos even though I almost always lug my camera, but I did take a few that evening.
The town erects a temporary dock every summer for people who want to fish or put in a light craft. There is a bigger, permanent boat launch dock farther up and two more temporary ones nearer downtown for cottagers to tie up if the want to visit downtown.
But what was shocking was the the dock was mostly submerged. I have never seen it like this as one always has had to dangle one's feet in the past.
|The kids and me: sitting on the same dock five years ago. Quite a difference.|
Further up, there was a lot of water lying in puddles. One has to look for interesting reflections, but I didn't find any although I tried.
On our return to the car, we spotted these two girls fishing, and one of them really got into her work. I tried to process this with a summery, vintage sort of look.
So, that was our little re-introduction to Riverside Park. Hopefully, we'll get there a little more frequently as the summer progresses.
Addendum: On the 16th (July 2017), we had rain for the hundredth day this year. This set a new record for how quickly we got to 100, beating the old record of July 31, 1983.
